We had the most gorgeous sunset at this winter beach elopement for Shannon and Nick.

Don’t take this as scientific proof, but I really feel like the sunsets in the colder months are so much more magical!

And speaking of magical – there was a special photobomber at this wedding!

A friend and fellow photographer was also on the beach that day doing Santa mini sessions near us.

The bride Shannon had to grab some photos with Jolly old Saint Nick before heading down the beach.

It definitely made for a joyful way to start their winter beach elopement that day!
